As Blighty prepares to wave goodbye and good riddance to the coldest month of the year, dotmailer’s HR team are looking forward to heading down to the TMRW Hub in Croydon for the launch of the Good Employer Charter, on 31st January.
The Croydon Good Employer Charter aims to boost the area’s economy by supporting the local supply chain and pledging to create opportunities. The charter also prioritizes diversity in the workplace and champions the Living Wage. It goes without saying that dotmailer are delighted to be involved.
The launch aims to explain the benefits and commitments for companies involved in the Charter, and encourage more Croydon businesses to sign up and pledge their support. The charter has already had pledges from 20 local businesses including Ikea, dotmailer, Croydon BID, Shaking Hands, Frost Group and MyOutSpace. It’s great to be in such good company!
We’re also excited to have our Co-Founder, Simon Bird, and our Global HR Director, David Aldrich speaking at the launch. David, who sits on the charter’s Advisory Board, will be providing the keynote speech before Simon takes the audience through dotmailer’s history of success – from its inception in a Croydon pub in 1999 to a global market leader with 8 offices worldwide!
Audience members will also get to hear from Richard Paccitti, the CEO of UK mental health charity MIND and Cllr Hamida Ali, the Cabinet Member for Communities, Safety and Justice. It’s great to see politicians working in partnership with local firms towards key principles which will benefit the whole community.
If you’re a Croydon business, it’s not too late to get involved. To pledge your company’s support to the Good Employer Charter, or to find out more about the initiative, register here.
